Our first nursing home started at the pavilion wards in 1999.
The residents staying in our home are semi-ambulant, wheelchair-bound or bed bound and some have other medical conditions. They come from a low socio-economic background and require high social as well as emotional support. They receive nursing care and/ or assistance in activities of daily living as well as participate actively in a structured rehab program to achieve better quality of life. Today, Ren Ci operates two nursing homes in the heartlands, one at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8 and the other at Bukit Batok Street 52. The third nursing home will operate by 2023 with more than 330 beds at the upcoming Woodlands health campus.
Ren Ci @ Ang Mo Kio
Ren Ci @ Ang Mo Kio is a purpose-built nursing home with 472 beds that allows our seniors to age in more homely environment with greater autonomy and dignified living in a space-efficient way. Each cluster has rooms with four beds, a shared living space, activity area, dining area and bathrooms, forming a household unit. The design of the home allows for “a smaller-scale and more familiar environment to support residents’ activity of daily living, and yet promotes interaction among seniors.
Ren Ci @ Bukit Batok St. 52
The 256-bedder nursing home located at Bukit Batok St. 52 has a senior care centre within its grounds, with services for the elderly who need day and dementia day care, and day rehabilitation services. In addition, the Keep Fit Centre (KFC) located within the Senior Care centre is opened for Bukit Gombak residents to exercise in the evenings. In line with the tightening of COVID-19 measures starting 8 May, KFC will be closed from 7 May 2021, 2359hrs onwards till further notice.

Our Third Nursing Home within a Health Campus, new building will house more than 330 nursing home beds, a senior care centre for 100 clients, and a home care team serving 100 clients.
Admission to any Ren Ci Nursing Homes is strictly by referral through the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), a centralised government agency that monitors the availability of beds across all ILTC (Intermediate and Long Term Care) facilities in Singapore. The AIC helps families look for suitable care options in Singapore. To apply for admission, you will need to consult a social worker at the hospital or polyclinic, and they would assist you in submitting an application to AIC. Please note that a copy of the total household income (where the applicant is registered under) and identification are required for the application.

The monthly charges for nursing home services will cost an estimated price range of $700 – $2418 after subsidy. The amount of subsidy depends on the means test and the classification of care needs (Resident Assessment Form) based on functional capabilities of the residents (ie, whether they needed assistance with feeding, dressing, bathing, walking and supervision of medications). Additional charges include a one-time refundable deposit and administrative charges. Other charges which are not covered by the basic cost may also apply.
You may speak to a medical social worker if you need more information on financing matters.
